|4Jeepn||check car-parts.com for used parts in your area. I got mine for $130 bucks came with 4.10 gears as well.(though for 35s gear wise you might need 4.56 or 4.88's) Needs some work, new brakes etc... you have to weld on new spring mounts and get some ford to jeep adaptors etc... figure another $100 in parts for that stuff. You will need to make sure the gear ratio of the axle's match front and rear. Now the cost will go up of course if you have to add new gears or locker or replace brakes etc. But it can handle v8 power and I would say 37 tires.|

|Austin Meredith||Didnt know axles had to be replaced for 350.|
|09-15-2010 10:29 PM|
|4Jeepn||So what axles are you planning to run with the 350?|

|Austin Meredith||I have a 94 Wrangler YJ Auto. Not sure what axles i have. Im getting the lift put on when i drop in my Chevy 350. So i deff will have the power to run the tires. So Rough Country 4 inch suspension and 2 inch shackles?|

|JDGROVER||and if you have the money you should look into soa|

|JDGROVER||what size engine do you have cause i have a 4 banger and i run 33s with factory geers and its fine. i have heard that 35s dont like dana 35s but it depends on how hard you wheele. and i wouldnt put a body lift on that is over 2 inches. shackles give you lift by putting more distance between the end of the leaf spring and the frame but the max they give is around 2 inches. i have 1 1/4 inch shackles on my rig. the gears you would need to regear cost about 300 plus instalation. what size axles do you have on your rig. because if you have dana 35s you might want to upgrade them to dana 44s before you run 35 inch tires. hope this helped.|

How much would regearing cost btw? Im looking for 35 for tire, but i dont want to risk any chance of rubbing. I also need new shocks, do they come with Rough country? Also what do shackles do? I see people with lifts talking about like 2 inch shackles and what not. What could i add to the 35 inch tires, and the 4 inch rough country lift?
Thanks people, i really do appreciate it.

If you go with a 4" RC kit, the kit contains everything needed to run the lift. dropped pittman, track bar relocater, tcase drop.
but once again it all depends on desired tire size.

|distortedtj||Desired tire size??? All boils down to what size tire for what size lift.|

I want to get a decent size lift on my Jeep to run bigger tires. I don't know if i should pay the 1800+ for a 6 inch long arm lift kit, or if i should do a 4 inch RC suspension lift with a 3 inch body lift. Suggestions of how to do this? Also when getting a lift what else needs to be done with the car? I know the brakes need to be extended but what else must be purchased?
